*MaGe = Marginalised Genders (women and marginalised gender identities and expressions)

From DJing to construction and scenography, the aim of Psst Mlle Workshops is to give underrepresented people access to practices they often hardly have access to. It’s a space where skills and knowledge can be shared. By coming and learning together, we tackle the representation issue at its roots.

Sound System Workshop

Building a Sound System

For this second round of workshops, we want to build a sound system for and by MaGe* people. The idea is to build it together and make it available to all of us for free, so our sister collectives and projects can use it for their events.

The project will last between three to four weeks.There will be sessions starting at 10 AM on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Those are limited to 8 people, but we will also host discussions around the topic of sound systems on Saturday mornings, which will be open to all.

You can register in the sessions you’d like to join via the REGISTER button. You will receive a confirmation email the week before. We will make a selection to make sure the group contains a few people who already have skills to share with the group.

Collective Thinking Workshop

From February 27 to April 15, 2024, Psst Mlle is hosting a new workshop at Les Halles de Schaerbeek entitled Collective Thinking. This one is different from the last DJing and sound system workshops we did, as it’s more about thinking than practice. That said, it still reflects our will to highlight the strength of collectivity. We wanted to quote Tiphanie Blanc’s words on this topic:

"One must disappear as a needy individual in order to better allow for the creation and emergence of a community of desires. This is why it is important to think of other ways of sharing our lives and experiences, through the mutualization of minority knowledge more than through the writing of dominant narratives in order to make counter-powers emerge."

During Psst Workshop - Collective Thinking, Psst Mlle invites MaGe* people and collectives from the cultural scene to meet once a week for two months to share resources and experiences, whether they’re thoughts, practices or emotions. As marginalised people face discrimination, they share common paths and obstacles. Talking about them, exchanging experiences and keys to solutions, helps making us stronger.

The programme includes pragmatic sessions on subjects such as administration - an overwhelming aspect for many - but also moments of care and reflection on themes such as the role of ecofeminism in our practices, self-care and collectivity.

Over the course of the eight sessions, a more or less regular group will meet to collectively seek answers to common questions and needs. Experts on certain subjects such as neurodiversity, migration law or administration will also be invited to join specific sessions in order to nurture our thoughts. The sessions will be in French and English, depending on the speakers. Everyone should feel free to express themselves in their own language and we will make things work.

Although this workshop is restricted to a limited group of carefully selected people, we want to ensure that our research can reach and benefit as many people as possible. This is why the results will be shared outside this group in a form that has yet to be collectively defined - physical publication, open source content,...

Thanks for registering to the Psst Collective Thinking Workshop.

Our team is reviewing your application and will get back to you shortly with more details.

Psst Mlle is an intersectional feminist platform standing for more inclusion and representation in nightlife and music. We aim to create tools to support MaGe* artists and cultural workers, while paying great attention to racial and economical discriminations. With our events, we're questioning the codes of nightlife and deconstructing the dance floor. Besides, we try to tackle discrimination at its roots with our workshops, conversations and more.

Founded in 2018 by Souria Cheurfi, the platform is carried by a collective whose members have evolved and will keep evolving. The collective's current members are Andrea Nivière, Daya Hallé, Katia Lecomte, Lola Lourdes, Manal Benmalek, Mika Oki, Soumaya Abouda, Souria Cheurfi, Yasmina Tayoub and Zoé Merchez. But Psst Mlle is a open and moving community - everyone who performs or contributes to any Psst Mlle projects is basically a part of it.

Since the very beginning, Psst has always been about collaborations and (re)uniting.

Psst MlleCharter

We invite anyone willing to work with us to agree with the charter below:


  • - A space where everyone can express themselves while respecting others.
  • - A space to share knowledge and experience.
  • - A space where we can question ourselves.
  • - A space where we deconstruct the codes established by the patriarchy.
  • - A space where we question our own codes.
  • - A space where under-represented issues are raised.
  • - A space where the invisible can express themselves.
  • - A space where party and care go hand in hand.
  • - A space where emerging and established talents are valued equally.
  • - A redefinition of the party space.
  • - And some lightness and love, too.

Psst Mlle is a space dedicated to coming together and reinventing things from scratch.


We expect from the people we interact with — audiences, institutions, venues, production teams, security staff, bartenders, technicians, and more:

  • - To welcome and interact with each other in a respectful and careful way.
  • - To make suggestions that are aligned with our values.
  • - To be willing to deconstruct, dialogue, and listen to each other in order to learn from each other.
  • - To keep an open mind and pay honest attention to racial, feminist, decolonial and LGBTQIA+ questions.
  • - To offer fair fees.
  • - To be kind and caring.

What we are looking for is real collaborations.

This charter is a work in progress, just like Psst Mlle.
